guitarists do play the melody and they need to be kinda loud yeah but bass is awesome! there needs to be more bassists and they need to be louder too.

Im in a band with my brother which is just bass guitar and drums. It is completely just, different music. I have trouble explaining to people what it is.

We have a song, ten minutes long, that starts off with this simple funky bass riff, by the end we are having a 3 minutes post-rock to finish things off. Throughout the middle thier is funk, jazz and just some simple straight forward rock riffs. Bass simply can produce melody along with rhythm. It all matters the way it is played and how it is played.

Bass!

I suspect that most of the bass players have left the planet ... and who can blame them?

I have recently become quite obsessed with bass. I've never really noticed its real diversity (and awesomeness) until now. I so badly want to learn to play some bass and am quite jealous of the numerous members on here who play!

hit your local pawn shop with $200 in your pocket and walk out with whatever looks coolest to you. if you've been able to teach yourself anything guitar you'll most definitely be able to teach yourself some bass basics. once you start having more questions, we'll have answers
